What does it mean to be a Genius?


.

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius. Ralph Waldo Emerson

In today’s society full of noisy distractions, how does one find their true genius?   What prevents a person from embracing the wisdom of ancient great civilizations?

 

In this painting “Civilizations” the artist Eriberto Oriol seems to be embracing and celebrating the symbols of ancient civilizations that have influenced him and his art.

He seems to be projecting his influences through shape, form, color, bold lines and texture.

 

His work bares influences of his father’s appreciation for the natural environment, Mesoamerica roots, love for African art and the Japanese influence that came from working as a young man with gardeners and landscapers.

 

It’s hard for Eriberto to try to give meaning or interpretation to his work, as he just seems to be a vessel for these inspirations. He believes that art retains a primal spirit, which allows him to go beyond himself.

 

He hopes that his work will help others to detect their own gleam of light? Imagine the Un-imaginable and to encourage them to see the contributions and achievements of other great civilizations.

What is Eriberto Oriol’s FOCUS now?


Eriberto is painting.

In some his painting, the images do not always reflect the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body.   What you see in some of his work is the intertwined and interactions of shapes, color, and texture.
